Covid 19 Food Support Program Update - Feb 2021

By Jamie Collum | Project Leader

We have some good news and bad news to share with respect to this program. The bad news is that the COVID pandemic continues to cause significant distress to the Nicaraguan economy and most specifically the tourism industry that so many families rely on for employment and income. While there is now some optimism with the vaccines rolling out across so many countries it seems that we are still months away from any real resumption of tourism in a safe way. This means that we expect this program will be needed for at least an additional 4-6 months and likely longer.

The good news is that the program has been incredibly impactful. We are now supporting 170 families with bi weekly food distributions. These basic packages each include cooking oil, rice, beans and soap for each family. While it is not much, it is enough to ensure families are not going hungry. 

We thank you for your generous support which allows us to make this possible!
